Welcome to Anfield!
The last Premier League game of 2016 is upon us, and boy is it a big one! Liverpool and Manchester City clash in a Second vs Third matchup that could very well define both teams' future in the title race.
Pep Guardiola and Jürgen Klopp meet again after eight formidable matchups in Germany, and their first game against each other in England will be a great one. Both teams are separated by a point, and City will start 2017 in second place and in great position to chase Chelsea if they get a vital victory at Anfield.
A win for Liverpool, and they will go after the Blues while City will fully concentrate their efforts on a top-three finish. After all, if Chelsea win, a loss for Guardiola's men will see them 10 points behind the leaders, and that's a very difficult gap to erase.
Let's forget about Chelsea, though. This is about Liverpool and Man City, Pep vs Klopp, the return of Sergio Agüero and a crazy atmosphere at Anfield. This is enough.
This will be so damn fun.
